How does the COVID-19 pandemic affect climate policy? Case studies on climate targets, recovery spending, and carbon fiscal reform
Funders Involved: SNSF; NSF; BMBF/DLR-PT
This project aims to understand the climate ambition of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), COVID-19 recovery packages, and fiscal reform. It uncovers the political and economic drivers underlying differences in climate ambition in these three types of policy intervention across countries. The project will deliver policy recommendations for national policymakers and IFIs on how to increase climate ambition.
